Celebrations and Recognitions

*Congratulations to one of our Instructional Assistants, Erika Slaughter who graduated from Northeast State on Wednesday! She will be continuing her studies in Education at King University this fall! We are proud of you and wish you the best Erika! We are lucky to have you on our Warrior Team!

*Thank you to all the teachers whose organization, planning, love and extra care for our students resulted in a very positive and memorable Washington DC field trip! This was an example of Sevier at its best.

*A big celebration to our students who attended our DC Trip. Everywhere we went in DC, people stopped us to compliment the behavior of our students. Many people who stopped us were even chaperones of other 8th grade field trips and they were amazed and the respectfulness and orderliness of our students. We also had compliments from every tour guide that we had and they continued to say how appreciative they were at the polite, friendly and respectful behavior of our students. We were VERY proud of all of our students.

*Another big thank you goes to our 8th grade teachers and 8th grade students who were at Sevier last week! You really stepped up to help our 6th Grade Orientation be the best ever!
